Welcome to The Westgate FALLS Adventure after shool program on Fridays from 4-6PM and Saturdays from 9:00-11:00 AM located at the Zion Hope Baptist Church at 504 Plateau Avenue, Lakeland, FL
On Fridays, The FALLS Adventure trains FITs (Facilitators in Training) while younger kids are inside with Shirley Pickett, President of the Westgate Neighborhood and various volunteers having fun with reading and playing games. FITs are middle schoolers and high schoolers who live in the neighborhood who are learning to be mentors for the younger neighborhood kids. The FITs learn certain life skills and character development such as communication, personal accountability, giving and receiving feedback, trust building, conflict resolution, cooperation and setting group and individual goals. On Saturdays, the FITs help climb the younger kids for fun.
